    Parent Announcements

    Dear Parents,
    Calling all Makers! We invite all Engineers, Inventors, Scientists and Tech Enthusiasts to join the Maker movement.  We will be hosting our 1st Annual Maker Faire on Wednesday March 30, 2016 for all students in Kindergarten through Grade 5. A Maker Faire is a celebration of inventions, creativity and resourcefulness. It’s a place to show what we have created and share what we have learned with others.
    Students in Grade 2,3,4,5 will present individual projects.  Each student in Grade 2,3,4,5 will need a presentation board to display their work.  Kindergarten and First grade classes will work with their classroom teacher for a class presentation.  Each Kindergarten and First Grade class is issued a presentation board to display their work. 
    Presentation boards will be sold by the PTA for $5.00.  Projects may be presented on an iPad if you have access to one in lieu of a presentation board. 
    Projects must be brought to school by March 15, 2016.

    Last week, New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and I announced that parents and guardians now have free access to Microsoft software. Families can download the software on up to five of their family’s computers and five tablets, smart phones, or other mobile devices. Much of this software has education-specific content that supports our students’ academic improvement. In addition, familiarity with these tools will help students be prepared for college and careers.
    Families can visit https://studentoffice.net/.net to claim a download of Microsoft Office 365 and other programs. They’ll need to enter either of the following information: the student’s date of birth and a parent phone number, or the parent’s email address. Please let families know that the information they enter to claim the download must match the information on their Blue Card on file with the school. Therefore, it is necessary that ATS has the most up-todate parent contact information in order for the verification and download process to be successful. If families have trouble claiming the download, they will be instructed to visit their school’s main office to make any necessary changes to their contact information. As Office 365 is a Microsoft Cloud product, parents must create a Microsoft Cloud account in order to download the software. The studentoffice.net website contains not only information on how to create an account, download the software, but also answers to “Frequently Asked Questions.” For technical assistance, families may contact Microsoft Customer Service at (800) 642-7676.
